Need ASUS BIOS to control fan speed

ASUS puffer motherboard in HP m1090n media center PC
Read somewhere that there are BIOS downloads that can accommodate low noise CPU fans.
This is what is installed now=
PTGD-LA/PTGD1-LA/PTGD2-LA Motherboard BIOS Update
05-2006 3.28=version

The HP prescott is just over 50 centigrade on start up and rises to over 70 centigrade, but I can only see this in the
BIOS, so I reboot and go into the BIOS after it has been running a while and is still HOT. The air flow is MUCH hotter
than my 2 other HP computers in the same series that only have a 3.0 GHz CPU. I can easily live with their noise level,
but for the 3.6, I had to buy 3 pair of professional hearing protection to wear all over the apartment as I can even
hear it from upstairs....It is like living in a factory and the stress is killing me. I feel more relaxed when I put it
into hibernation. It comes out of hibernation to record, then I turn it off and watch the shows on the other 2
computers. Good thing I have a network, But since I can hear it from almost any room in the apartment, it is not a
system I would even recommend to an enemy, so I can not sell it.

Hi, im using a motherboard asus m4a88td-m and i cant control my fan speed(cpu fan and chassis fan) in any way.... i tried the asus motherbord software it doesnt work, i try settings in the bios(cool and...


You may not have the correct type of fan for this to work. Typically, you need a three or four pin fan (you will see three or four wires on the plug) for fan speed control to work correctly. If you only have two wires, your fans do not have speed control functionality.

You can also have another issue. If you do have a three or four ping fan, you may not have it connected to the correct fan headers on the motherboard for it to work correctly, or you may have it connected to an external fan controller.

I have a HP M1270N Media Center PC. The CPU Fan


The CPU fan is designed to run constantly to prevent the CPU from overheating. The speed depends on temperature condition of the room; slow in cold and fast in a hot room. However if you suspect that it runs too fast them try re-seating the CPU. WARNING: Re-seating should only be done if you are know how to do; don't experiment.

If it is running noisy, you can apply one or two drops of machine oil to the fan's spindle.

Other reasons include deposits of dust; use a blower to remove dust from the heat-sink.

To make sure you CPU is not in a critical state, log in the BIOS and in the hardware monitoring tab check the CPU temperature. It should be near 60 deg Celsius or 140 Fahrenheit.

One thing more, do not apply thermal grease in excess; its a conductive compound and can short the motherboard if it melts and deposits on the motherboard due to high CPU temperature.

Memory upgrade problems


Same here, except that I haven't even been able to get 512MB x 4 to work. Also upgraded BIOS. Did it run OK on 1GB x 2? (Mine does.)

Does ASUS A8N-SLI DELUXE support fan speed changing?


You can research *********** board and drivers at ASUS.com.
You may find a new BIOS update which controls the fan speeds and temp.
If not, you can find plenty of frreware which will handle *********** board.

Cpu fan runs at high speed all the time


the problem is that the mother board you are now using has a 4th wire that sences cpu temp this allow the heat sink fan to change speed to get this to work correctly you will need to replace the fan with a 4 wire style. what is happening is your not getting a temp siginal back to motherboard so the fan controller think it hot and send full power to fan alll the time the stock fan in hp systems is not very good any way .Get a good heat sink and fan to fit your new board ebay has them very cheap 5.00 to 20.00 this will all so increase you system temp and all get the proper cooling when you really need it.

FAN RUNS HIGH SPEED ALL THE TIME


Alright you can adjust this in the motherboard but it is much easier to do with an application called speefan it will let you change all of the fans speeds manually or set them to automatic. This app works best if you leave your computer running for long periods of time so that u dont have to restart it alot. Google speedfan.

Motherboard problem


Chances are the CPU fan may be running too slow, dust & dirt build up under & over the fan blades can be a big factor. CPU fan could just be going. Are you over clocking the system. (IF so buy a better heatsink & fan for over clocking the system).
To check if CPU is getting too hot. Enter the bios & go to the title, "Power" page 2-28. Open Hardware monitor & check the CPU temp & mother board temp. (Make sure the case is closed in normal running conditions).

Cpu fan noisy /chip fan fail


You must buy a new CPU Fan. You can get them HERE or a zillion other places on the Internet. You need a Socket 939 type fan that will handle your cpu speed. If you need help installing it, it may be in the manual. You can read the manual by clicking on the picture of your MB at the top of this post and then scrolling down.

Hope that fixed ya...
